92+ Stephen Tanzer

Pungent aromas of black raspberry, crushed stone, licorice pastille, violet and spices. Broad, chewy and backward in the mouth, in a rather masculine, brooding, slightly medicinal style, showing little early sweetness. With its serious structure and notes of wild spices and herbs, this is like a mini-Bonnes-Mares.

91Wine Spectator

A saline, minerally version, with graphite, cherry, currant and subtle spice notes. The tannins are well-integrated, with a lightly dusty coating on the finish.

89-91The Wine Advocate

...floral bouquet with hints of dried violet petals infusing the black fruit profile...palate is medium-bodied with a citrus-fresh opening...patently good substance here and it segues into a firm, quite masculine, structured finish...

17.5Jancis Robinson

Juicy and haunting nose. Lots of fruit before the structure. Very beguiling. Complete. Long.


Louis Jadot

Maison Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy’s most respected negociants. Founded in 1859 by the Jadot family, the prestige and quality of the estate’s wines were well established in the 19th century. The family continued buying highly desirable vineyards in the 20th century. In 1985 the estate was sold to Rudy Kopf, Jadot’s American importer. Located in Beaune, the estate has 336 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Though all the maison’s wines are known for their high quality, signature wines are the Bonnes Mares, Chambertin-Close de Beze, Chevalier-Montrachet les Demoiselles, Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Musigny. Pierre-Henry Gagey is president.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Chambolle-Musigny, Les Baudes

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
